My SS steals ALL the time. Sometimes it's bigger things like money and most recently, he stole about 15-20 lunch snacks right out of my room. It's not like he doesn't get these things, he just simply has to ask. As an example, I gave him two cans of pop on a Sunday and Monday morning, he took one. Saturday night, I bought him a bag of chips and he was allowed to have a bowl full after dinner. Sunday, morning, he decided to get into them. I'm getting sick of having to lock pop and chip dip up in the bar fridge and sick of having to lock up any kind of junk food in the filing cabinet. Worst is, when we bust hin and punish him, he FREAKS out and throws a tantrum fit for a 5 year old (he's 13), or talks to us like we're trash and doesn't take ANY responsibility.
